Regnery Gateway

Regnery Gateway, dedicated to serious works of cultural, social, and political analysis, is a reaffirmation of Regnery’s tradition of publishing original and penetrating conservative thinkers. In addition to publishing hardcover and paperback editions of new books, the imprint is the home of Regnery’s paperbacks of classic works of literature, philosophy, and religion called Gateway Editions.

Russell Kirk’s The Conservative Mind, which Henry Regnery’s fledgling publishing house brought out in 1953, gave the conservative movement its name and a coherent philosophical framework. Convinced that “it is, in the end, ideas—not newspapers, television personalities, bureaucrats, or politicians—that rule the world,” Regnery went on to publish an illustrious host of thinkers who defied the reigning orthodoxy of liberalism. The list would include William F. Buckley Jr., Richard Weaver, James Burnham, Whittaker Chambers, Friedrich Hayek, Willmoore Kendall, and Romano Guardini.

Two decades into the twenty-first century, nearly every aspect of publishing has changed since Henry Regnery’s day. A culture in which attention spans expire after 280 characters poses certain challenges for long-form nonfiction. But ideas still rule the world, and for many of them, the most effective expression is still a book.

The growing intolerance of America’s intellectual and cultural establishment makes an intrepid independent publisher essential for a new generation of defiant thinkers.
